Hi, we would like to have a background image in our grid control, and at the same time the capability to change the cell background color of any cell. It seems that if a backgroud image is specified, then the cell background color can''t change. Any suggestion ? Thanks in advance Riccardo

Hi Riccardo, Setting the BackgroundImage will set the TransparentBackground property to true and this has the higher precedence over the backcolor property. Hence this causes the issue. To have both image and backcolor, you can use the FillRectangle method in the DrawCell event. Here is the code snippet. private void gridControl1_DrawCell(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridDrawCellEventArgs e) { if(e.RowIndex == 4) { SolidBrush br = new SolidBrush(Color.PaleGreen); e.Graphics.FillRectangle(br, e.Bounds); br.Dispose(); } } Let us know if this helps. Best regards, Madhan.
